Dan ‘Mad-Dog’ Morgan might soon lose his infamous bush-ranger nickname, with the Wangaratta Cemetery Trust asking the public whether the plaque which has adorned his grave since 1980 should be changed.
The trust is asking for public submission on the accuracy and appropriateness of the plaque after questions from a member of the public.
The plaque describes the bush-ranger as ‘Mad Dog Morgan’, gives a short summary of his life and death at Peechelba Station in 1865.
Chair of the Wangaratta Cemetery Trust, mayor Ken Clarke, said the trust received advice from the Department of Health and Human Services.
“Based on that advice, we’re calling for submissions regarding the plaque and the information displayed on it,” he said.
Submissions can be received up until Friday, 27 October.
